Sorry for the delayed response.

The goal of recovery is not abstinence, but learning how to navigate in a world that undeniably has obstacles and triggers. This forum is a safe place to practice the skills that will allow one to learn just that. That said, there may be triggering posts. I believe it is not the possibility of triggering posts that your partner should be concerned with but his reactions to those posts. If he comes here to focus on the lessons, and does so, then the prospect of being triggered will become less of a threat. Avoidance is not an effective way of learning to overcome addiction. Just as people with food addictions still have to eat, people with online porn addictions still have to live in a world where the internet is a useful and universal tool. He can learn to relate to the computer and the internet as such. It will take work, but it is worthwhile.

Thank you for your question.

Be well.
